Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Hey team!

Lush is a shop that I always used to bypass in my local shopping centre, mainly due to the overpowering smells that waft out of the door. I always used to wonder how on earth the Lush employees could stand to work in such an environment, until one day I took a chance and decided to peek about. Lucky enough for me my nose got used to the smells and I managed to have a good sniff around, so to speak.

The idea of Lush products as being fresh and handmade is really what sells the brand to us, their customers. For me, one of their biggest selling points, besides their natural approach to cosmetics and beauty, is the fact that they do not test on animals whatsoever, and indeed have sparked many a controversial row of late with their striking and successful ad campaigns (yes, I'm talking about that live window display demonstration!). By the by, they have an impressive range of products for the bath, body, face, hair, and shower and which the recent introduction of their 'Emotional Brilliance' cosmetics range I thought I'd offer my thoughts on their bubblegum flavoured lip scrub.

Made from half naturally occurring ingredients, and half safe synthetics this little pot of neon pink granules is a 'perfectly pink polisher [that] keeps lips in tip top condition and tasting of candy floss' as labelled on the new packaging, and I have to agree entirely. The smell is sweet but not overbearing, the neon pink appeals to the crazy girl inside of me, and the after effects of the treatment on my lips makes them feel so smooth and soft! Due to the main ingredient being a natural castor sugar, this little pot of sugary goodness is entirely safe to consume, simple dip your finger in the jar, put your lips together and rub the granules all over your lips (if you can stand to actually 'scrub' like you would with a body scrub treatment in the shower then it makes your lips even smoother!) and once you're satisfied simply lick it off and ta-da, fabulously smooth, kissable lips!
(The sales lady even told me that if I wanted to just eat all of the product I could, but I think you'd end up feeling funny, so I told her I'd stick to using it for it's intended purpose!)

I like to use my lip scrub before applying lipstick as it creates that perfect smooth base for the colour to stay put, but isn't too harsh so as to draw out moisture. The lip scrub also contains natural jojoba oil to give you a moisture boost without feeling too greasy, so it's a perfect lip colour base for sure.

Priced at £5.25 for a 25g pot you might think that it's a little pricey, but remember that it's all handmade and a lot of the ingredients are natural so I think it's great value for money, especially for the benefits it provides for my lips!

I have to mention that this is currently the only product I own from Lush and while I love it so much I would like to try out other things that I might come to love just the same. So what are your favourite Lush products? Can you recommend any to me?
